ARM YOUR SELF
1ST PETER 4:1
Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
Brothers, please allow me to teach you a lesson on the mind of Christ Jesus.
We who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior are to try each and every day to be like him, and to love as he loved. Jesus suffered in the flesh for you and I. His suffering unto death did free us from sin.
Brothers, please see here in verse 1 that you and I have ceased from sin. We are to walk no more as we walked when we were yet unsaved. We have been delivered from sin because of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection. His suffering in the flesh has freed you and I.
Arm yourself with the same mind of Christ Jesus our Lord. Not with your fleshly mind, but rather with your spiritual mind. It is the mind of your spirit which possesses the armor of the mind of Jesus. When we accept this truth nothing or no one can defeat our us.
Please receive Peter's teaching here as we walk through this life here on earth knowing that we are already victorious. You only need to know that you are armed with the mind of Christ. Jesus did only what he saw the Father do, and he only said what he heard the Father say.
Arm yourselves with the mind of Christ.
1st Peter 4:2
That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
Brothers, we are no longer to live our lives in the flesh as the lost world lives. But, rather we are to live the rest of our time here on earth to the will of God.
Please pray each morning as you rise to face your day, that the Holy Spirit who is your teacher would show you when you step our to God's will for your life. He will show you all things. All your have to do is ask, and then receive. Walk in the grace of God.
